Risotto al Cioccolato

Creamy chocolate rice pot with raspberries and almonds

Are you looking for a delicious chocolate recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my healthy chocolate rice pudding recipe for you to enjoy.

This recipe is dedicated to my son Rocco. On holiday he surprised me by going to get a huge bowl of rice pudding for breakfast. I was chuffed to bits as normally he’s a chocoholic, but he soon ruined the illusion by pulling out six pots of chocolate spread, which he proceeded to stir into the rice. After that, he tucked in, finishing the lot. I was allowed a taste and had to admit that it was very good. Of course, I have made this recipe a little more elegant and have served it for breakfast and as a dessert.
